Set of two books -- AbraVocabra: The Amazingly Sensible Approach to Teaching Vocabulary by Amy Rider and Randy Larson
â€œâ€¦ a book that makes teaching vocabulary easy and effective. The book includes 24 lists of 12 words--all words taken from newspapers, magazines, and television. The words are practical words that any reasonably educated person is likely to encounter in real life. "AbraVocabra" includes the following: "tip-off" sentences to help students figure out what the words mean; simple, student-friendly definitions; lots of ideas for getting the students to use, and thus learn, the words; interesting tests that do more than ask students to "regurgitate" definitions; and playing cards and instructions for playing the "Vocabra" game.â€

The Diaries of Adam and Eve, translated by Mark Twain
From the Publisher: "The Diaries--written near the end of Mark Twain's life and career--are perhaps his wisest, most personal works. The wry humor we expect is matched by a heartbreaking tenderness found nowhere else in his writings. And it was only in Eve that Twain ever wrote from a woman's viewpoint. An afterword details Twain's fascination with Adam and the parallels between his own marriage and Adam and Eve as depicted in the Diaries."

Alcestis by Euripides (translated and adapted by Ted Hughes)
From Library Journal: â€œThis new verse translation and adaptation of Euripides' earliest surviving classic, Alcestis (438 B.C.E.), was British Poet Laureate Hughes's last translation before his death in 1998. Ironically, the character Death plays a prominent part in the drama. In order to let her husband, King Admetos, live, queen Alcestis gives up her young life in a bargain arranged by Apollo with Death. The tragic outcome is thwarted when Heracles visits the palace without knowing of Alcestis's death. After learning of Admetos's bereavement, Heracles, in gratitude, decides to rescue Alcestis from Death in a wrestling match. His success reunites the royal couple. â€¦ Hughes's poetic style is full of beauty and pathos. Highly recommended â€¦â€- Ming-ming Shen Kuo, Ball State Univ.
